    This man was shot on La Salle and Newhall. The street was littered with class from car windows. There are bullet holes in houses and cars. There have been three recent shootouts on this small block. There has been gunfire heard almost every day. Tonight, there were three seperate shooting events in the neighborhood. Children live on this block as well as every where else in Bayview/Hunter’s Point. The police come right away when someone is shot. The rest of the time I do not see or hear a police presence.
